The Miami Dolphins schedule has some up and down weeks but they can easily get to 11 wins on the season if they play like last year.
I don’t like to preface anything because that basically implies you are giving yourself an out if you are wrong but when it comes to the 2021 season it has to be said, any predictions is predicated on Tua Tagovailoa taking a step forward. Not offensive line play, not running back contributions, the Dolphins in 2021 will succeed or fail on the arms and legs of Tagovailao.
That pretty much says all there needs to be said about this upcoming season. Quarterback play is important because unlike last year, there is no Ryan “Magic” Fitzpatrick to come in and save the game. Jacoby Brissett is a solid back-up if he is needed to game manage late but he isn’t going to rescue the season.
Miami will get the advantage of nine home games this year and no road game in the U.S. will be on the west coast with Las Vegas being the furthest game of the year at a four hour flight. Miami will travel to London as well which will be 9 hours. What they won’t do is take a multi-city tour of the west coast teams.
The Dolphins should be able to win 11 games this year and advance to the playoffs provided the above “preface” comes to fruition. The question is how do they get there and this is the breakdown.
